The worst thing
about writing every day
is the feeling
that all I do is bitch and moan
and also
that I say this too often
knowing it is not relevatory
but just
part of life.
I am upset and sad
and also tired of feeling
that way.
I put money in my dad's account
and he complains about it
though he also complains about
the cost of things.
I get an extra chocolate chip coffee cake
for my son
and he cries and wines
and says when is it going to stop
when I ask him to do his homework
which makes my girlfriend scream
that why can't there just be no screaming
in this home
and so
when I'm changing out
the light switches
even though I don't want
to get electrocuted
I also think
wouldn't it be nice?
